Caltrans alerts us that as part of the Highway 1 Traffic Signal Upgrade Project, all this week they’ll be closing lanes on 19th and Park Presidio Blvd, making what is frequently a backed up street a little more frustrating.

The closures will occur on “various lanes” of both north and southbound Park Presidio/19th Avenue between California and Fulton, and at Judah, Kirkham, Lawton, Noriega, Ortega, Pacheco, Quintara and Ulloa today through Friday. The southbound bound closures are scheduled from 9 AM-3 PM, southbound from 9-2.
